Cult Of Luna Cancel European/UK Tour With Alcest & Svalbard

Cult Of Luna have cancelled their European/UK tour with Alcest and Svalbard. The trek was unable to move forward due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Cult Of Luna commented:

“We hoped that it wouldn’t come to this. You all know the situation we’re in and at the moment it’s still too unsafe to tour Europe, which means that we have to cancel the February/March tour. We’re all super disappointed about this but we have to adapt to reality. These are dark times for sure but it’s important to keep in mind that people’s health and lives are the only thing that is important – everything else can wait.

Pandemics happen every now and then, it’s just that our generation hasn’t experienced anything like it. As before, humanity will get through this. The faster we all get vaccinated and act responsible the quicker we will get back to normal, because we will. We promise that we’ll still be here and we hope that you guys have the patience to wait for us.

All tickets will be reimbursed and we will update you as soon as possible regarding new touring plans

Beyond The Redshift festival & October 2022 tour are maintained”

Cult Of Luna Premiere “Cold Burn” Video

Cult Of Luna have premiered a new video for their new song “Cold Burn.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Long Road North,“ which will be released on February 11.

The group commented:

“The music video for ‘Cold Burn‘ is directed and produced by North Kingdom Greenhouse. We have done many music video projects over the years, always aiming to find a unique angle. With the brief we got from the band, we saw an attractive creative opportunity to explore what we believe will be the future of music video creation—combining music with real-time technology and interactive storytelling.
The video for ‘Cold Burn‘ will be followed by an immersive game experience where fans can immerse themselves in this unique visual world we created for the album called ‘The Long Road North‘.

Building the experience in Unreal Engine allows us to invite fans as the hero of the story to explore the music video in their unique way. The song is adaptive to how you navigate the world, so every time you play the music video game, you will get a different experience. The project is an innovative collaboration between Cult Of Luna, North Kingdom, and Arctic Game Lab, and developed by a team of game designers, 3D artists, and musicians in the north of Sweden.”

Cult Of Luna To Release New Album “The Long Road North” In February

Cult Of Luna have announced that their new album, “The Long Road North,” will be released on February 11. Pre-orders for the effort will launch on December 1 and a teaser for it can be found below:

Johannes Persson commented:

“‘The Long Road North‘ is a long road home. A direction dictated by a call that penetrates rock and echoes through the forest. It flows over every lake, accelerated by the wind. When it reaches you, you know it’s time. Time to move forward. You don’t know where it will lead but you put the trust in it. With eyes raised towards the midnight sun it pulls you closer. The road is long and the end is uncertain.”

Cult Of Luna’s Johannes Persson commented:

“When we walked off stage in Mexico City in early spring of 2020 we had no idea that it would be our last show for almost two years.

We have since announced one tour and had to move it to the end of 2022.

Now, we can finally announce a tour for early next year that will make up for all the lost time.

In a way it feels like we need to re-conquer that stage and with Alcest and Svalbard it feels less of a burden.

We’re more than grateful that we have such amazing, solid artists to help us retake it.

As if just going on tour doesn’t feel unreal enough, it still hasn’t sunk in that we are playing the Olympia in Paris.

If there’s any such thing as holy ground in music then this venue definitely qualifies into that category.

But wait… there’s even more: eight years after our first Beyond the Redshift festival in London, we’re doing it again.

The line-up is curated by us and we are determined to bring you a bunch of our favourite artists and bands you didn’t know you were a fan of.

Bands are being booked as I write this and we’re going to announce the full line-up later this summer.

It will be la grande finale of the tour and we hope to see you there.

– Johannes, Cult of Luna“

Cult Of Luna To Release “The Raging River” In February

Cult Of Luna will be releasing a new EP titled “The Raging River“ on February 5. The effort comes with five tracks including “Inside Of A Dream,” which features Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, etc.)

“The Raging River” Track Listing:

01. “Three Bridges”
02. “What I Leave Behind”
03. “Inside Of A Dream” (feat. Mark Lanegan)
04. “I Remember”
05. “Wave After Wave“

Johannes Persson commented:

“‘The Raging River‘ feels more like a bridge. A midpoint that needs to be crossed so we can finish what we started with ‘A Dawn To Fear‘. It’s a seamless continuation of the writing process and the creative mindset that has guided us for the last couple of years.
It’s been an interesting as well as an introspective way of working, having our instinct leading the way and then having to figure out where it takes us.

But not only has it been a linear journey, some aspects of it is clearly circular. We have been a fan of Mark Lanegan for many years. So in 2005 when we wrote the song ‘And With Her Came The Birds‘ we had his voice in mind and the working title was ‘The Lanegan Song‘. But we were not many years over 20 and our lack of self-confidence prevented us from even daring to ask.

It took fifteen years for us to get the guts to ask him. Hearing his voice on ‘Inside Of A Dream‘ is nothing more than feeling that we’re inside of a dream.”
